who flew airplanes into the twin towers and pentagon, who murdered 14 people at fort hood and shamelessly shot soldiers in little rock and planted ied's on the road sides in afghanistan to kill those who wore our flag on their soldiers. i've got a hard time convincing some americans it does matter to having our friends and-- israel is the only nation in the middle east who mirrors our core values of freedom and responsibility of the equality of human beings, the value of education and power of dissent even with one's own government and the right of the people to change their government without ballots-- with ballots, rather instead of bullets and bombs. and the president could do the country and in fact the world a favor by withdrawing the nomination of chuck hagel for defense secretary. a man who is so utterly and ignorant of the real enemy that we face that he believes that iran can be trusted and israel can't. he'd be better suited for taking tickets at yellow stone than the placement of our military assets to defend against threats. i hope you'll call and e-mail your s

for it. as late as september the pentagon was saying they were still trying to understand what the law was. in december they hadn't started. just a few weeks ago they start coming out now with all these dooms day scenarios. the reality is that the president could have stopped it. the house of representatives has passed not one, but two bills that would have stopped it. the senate has done nothing. martha, when the president talks about a balanced budget, most americans think what he means we balance the amount of money coming in with the amount of money coming out. martha: right. >> that is not what the president talks about with balance. martha: that is interesting, jay carney quoted alan simpson but the other thing he did not quote that alan simpson said, if this president does not get serious about deficit reduction, including taking on medicare and social security and reforming those entitlement programs, that he will have a failed presidency. do you think that is a message republicans have done a good job getting across? >> well, martha, i think that it is very difficult sometimes

during the testimony, it was interesting because panetta said the pentagon, the c.i.a., and the department of state were all on board with sending the rebels in syria where there has been mass genocide because ofor us to send them arms. you know who said no? the white house. well, we don't know if it's going to work. we don't know which of the rebels to arm. ultimately we don't know if it will result in the ouster of assad. >> brian: the "washington post" lead editorial today says hillary clinton and david petraeus, running the c.i.a. identified the group that they believe would have been the preferrable group to take over through all the rebels, they weeded through and had a plan. and the president nixed it. the word is too political. they wanted to make it seem we're not on a war footing with the election a month away. >> gretchen: maybe the election playing a huge role. let's look at the fox news polls right now. recently conducted, how many people feel our country compared to five years ago? nearly half of those polled say america is weaker and less powerful to
